It is a skin condition characterised by persistent redness on the face, specifically convex areas such as cheeks and nose. The condition gets aggravated with multiple stimuli like emotional stress, hot drinks, alcohol, spicy food, exercise, hot bath, alcohol and smoking. The exact cause is unknown but abnormal vasomotor response to thermal stimuli is proposed to be one.
